What is a threshold plate?
Threshold plates, most commonly made with aluminium, are the extrusions that are fitted to adjoining floor surfaces. They provide a smooth, sturdy transition where floor surface differ in height, or a gap exists.
Where are threshold plates used?
The most common location that aluminium threshold plates are fitted to is the sill under a doorway. In some cases, they can be used where two contrasting types of floor surface meet for a couple of reasons: To ensure a noticeable difference between surfaces and/or height (or if a gap exists), and to make the transition between these easier to cross, minimising the risk of an accident.
What do threshold plates do?
Threshold plates simply fit on the floor beneath a door where two varying floors meet. They provide a neat and strong transition when moving between rooms, and can be removed, updated, or changed as and when your property requires. They make it easier for both foot traffic and wheeled vehicles of almost any kind.
Benefits of threshold plates
Door threshold plates are designed to provide a seamless sealing between floor surfaces. Not only that, but they can also act as a weather barrier against the elements (if the door floor plate is fitted beneath a door connecting to the outside world), as well as acting as an interior air seal.
Special features of threshold plates
Both private and commercial door threshold plates come in a variety of forms. For instance, though aluminium is the most common material used, door threshold plates can also come in other metal and wood finishes. Threshold plates and ramps come in a wide range of shapes and sizes to suit countless needs; both straight and curved shapes are available, in both ramp and ‘bridge’ forms, along with a variety of other more specific shapes and configurations.
